Abstract

Lymphomania is a blog that follows the author's journey from diagnosis of Hodgkin's lymphoma through treatment, relapse, more treatment, and relapse again. It looks at the bright, the dark, and the funny side of illness while challenging the reader's sense of his own mortality. This blog (www.seegirlwrite.com) will continue indefinitely and will also eventually become the backbone of a creative nonfiction collection of essays.
